Tuesday, May 15 2007 - A Challenge Tonight
View WILLLOSEIT's food & exercise for this day
My sister is a pediatrician who has written a diet and exercise program to combat childhood obesity. She recently became the spokesperson for Apple and Eve juices and will be featured on all their products. Tonight she is being honored at a dinner as a one of Long Island's most influential women. I am in the shadow, trying not to cast a cloud on her. I am obese and obviously not a disciple of her program. Not because it doesn't work, but because...well because she is my sister. You know how that works. Anyway, I don't want to be an embarrassment to her; the thin healthy doctor with the very obese sister. My brother will be there too. I can't stand being around him and it isn't because he is thin. We can't choose our family....so I am stuck. I am not looking forward to this at all. I am very proud of my sister, but would rather have my head shaven than sit through this dinner tonight. I will do it to be supportive though! Thankfully Ralph (my husband) will be there to hold my hand and kick me under the table when my brother (notice I didn't say if) makes me crazy! Go Mary Ellen and keep your fingers crossed that the cocktail hour doesn’t do me in….Caio for now….
